The militants of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist group are forcing their sex slaves to take birth control so they can repeatedly rape them, it has been reported.
The distressing move by ISIS fighters followed by a ruling by the terror group which prevents them to rape their slaves after they become pregnant.
The ruling by the terror group also prevents its fighters to take a woman or girl as a slave if they are carrying another man’s child.
According to reports, the birth control methods the sex slaves are forced to take includes birth control pills and injections.
“Every day, I had to swallow one in front of him. He gave me one box per month,” one of the 37 former sex slaves told the New York Times during an interview.
She added “When I ran out, he replaced it. When I was sold from one man to another, the box of pills came with me.”
The report further added that the owners of the sex slaves provided the box of birth control as proof the women are not pregnant when they were selling their slaves to other fighters.
Reports have also emerged that one pregnant woman was forced to take abortion pills, while another pregnant slave was repeatedly punched in the stomach after refusing to have an abortion.
Most Isis sex slaves are from the thousands of Yazidi women captured when Isis overran Mount Sinjar in Iraq in 2014, according to The Independent.
Yazidi women who escaped from Isis have said as many as 3,400 Yazidi women and children are still being held hostage by the group.
Isis leaders previously issued a fatwa detailing how and when its fighters could rape female sex slaves, which described the practise as “one of the inevitable consequences of jihad”. -KP
